Look at the words. Do you own up. If you are an artist, writer, musician etc. - do you self-mythologise? Do you present the image that fits most neatly with your work – helping it commercially or aesthetically or bothly. Or does the work and its pastness help to frame the mythology of self by hindsight? You are the myth, or you are your work: veiled by a nemonymity with which you attempt to cultivate a pique of detachment – yet creating hinterlands of perspective. You may own up to it, but do you actually own it, this self-mythology. Delivery by default mythly.
